Reflection: Real World Applications Digraphs Practice - Section 3: Student Practice


In order for our students to master digraphs, we have to make them relevant to their daily life.  One way to do this is to show students that they will indeed encounter digraphs quite frequently.  The fastest way to make this connection is to have students write using one of their digraphs.  When students write about this non-concrete skill, it instills in them a real-life connection to words that they are going to have to use.  This is why writing is a very important step here; it allows students to make a needed connection to a typically hard-to-grasp skill.
